After every major fire, fire safety is an item that comes back in the news. The Dutch TV program Zembla spent in 2018 another broadcast on fire related to the application of insulation materials in building practice.
The intense heat of a fire not only causes material to burn, but it can also damage the (bearing) construction of a building. This directly threatens the health and safety of the residents or users of the building.
In order to prevent damage and risks in the event of fire, Heraklith has developed fire-resistant insulation boards. These are for example the A2 Decorative Panel and the Tektalan A2 wood wool combi boards. These wood wool boards offer a good fire resistance. By optimally protecting the structure, the safety of the residents or users of the building is guaranteed. Fire safety is particularly important in escape routes and public spaces.
Moreover, the wood wool panels do not melt, there is no drop formation (D0) and in the event of a fire there is only a very small smoke development (S1).

Heraklith leads the way with an excellent fire class and fire resistance for wood wool panels. We are happy to advise you on the correct installation and fasteners for fire-resistant applications.
